Tiger & Woods (Editainment)
Larry and David are two elusive disco afficionadoâ€™s making music under the guise of Tiger & Woods. Having done remixes for the likes of Tensnake, their boogie inspired disco has caused a huge stir in the house and disco scene.
Lone (Magic Wire)
Over the past year, Nottingham-based producer Lone (a.k.a. Matt Cutler) has undertaken quite the reinvention, leaving behind the hip-hop flavored abstraction and hazy beatscapes of his notable Ecstasy & Friends and Lemurian albums for a quicker-paced detroit techno inspired sound thatâ€™s much better suited for the dance floor. We sincerely hope Loneâ€™s dance party never stops!!
Wbeeza (SecretSundaze / Third Ear recordings)
Wbeeza's unique sound takes in the history and lineage of 20 years of house music and techno with a fresh twist. His productions have a striking balance of jacking basement vibes with swinging jazz grooves and tough acid tinges. Wbeeza's killer live set is particularly refined, balancing the power of motorized techno with organic rolling polyrhythms. Garnering international acclaim, including support from Stacey Pullen, Michel Cleis, Dixon, Ame, Steve Bug, Jus Ed, Levon Vincent, Delano Smith, Mr Scruff, & many many others.
Gerd Janson (Running Back)
Gerd Janson runs the German label Running Back with Thorsten Scheu (aka Glance). He was a regular guest at Mannheimâ€™s legendary Milk Club. Gerd Janson has been serving the hottest house and disco cuts at Frankfurtâ€™s Robert Johnson where he has been hosting the Liquid club nights together with DJ heavyweight Thomas Hammann. Without a doubt, Gerd Janson is one of the hottest talents on the German DJ circuit.
XXXY (Infrasonics/Fortified Audio)
Rupert Taylor began producing electronic music fuelled by his love at the time of drum and bass and techno. Through the influential record shop Pelikan Neck he picked up on the early forms of dubstep and focused his productions on bass heavy garage influenced tracks. Early â€˜09 xxxy released â€œReflections epâ€ on the influential Manchester label Mindset and â€œScience Fiction/651â€ on Formant Recordings. By late 2009 he had begun to become more and more influenced by house music . 2010 saw the release of Baltimore influenced â€œBlue Flashing Lightsâ€ and the funky roller â€œKnow Youâ€ which was included in FACT magazineâ€™s tunes of 2010 list.
Darling Farah LIVE (Civil Music)
Talented eighteen year old Darling Farah from the United Arab Emirates has managed to master the art of production and spawn an underground scene all on his own. Originally from Detroit, Farah was born into this world with techno already sewn into his DNA. His debut will hit the shops via Civil Music on October 4th, signalling the arrival of this producer on European soil. For the release, Civil have also thrown up a rather tasty remix package with a deep and stylish rework from Dirty Birdâ€™s Christian Martin, a wonky minimal remix from Clara Moto and the futuristic acid stylings of Funkineven. A living embodiment of the internet generation of producers, there seems to be no limit of what this young producer is capable of. All we know is that weâ€™re going to have a lot of fun finding out!
Jamie Funk (1 Trax)
Jamie is part of an exciting new breed of London artists currently pushing electronic dance music far beyond the UK and Europe.
With roots stemming from jungle, D'n'B and US/UK garage and a music career spanning nearly 2 decades, Jamie started carving out a name for himself on early pirate stations and raves playing Jungle and Garage..He started producing his own music in 2003 and had his first releases with London soulful house outfit 'afrodisiax' making mostly soulful and deep stuff..
He released his first solo EP on MN2S's subsidary label 1trax in 2009 and since then has literally gone from strength to strength, releasing on various labels such as 1trax, Vitalik and Danza Macabra..
2011 was a good year for Jamie earning support from the likes of Richie Hawtin, Magda, Martin Landsky amongst many others and being asked to play at some of London's hottest parties such as Wet Yourself and Creche.
2012 is already shaping up to be another exciting year with releases on Sasha's latest imprint 'Last Night On Earth' alongside EP's on 1trax and Kina Music and other projects under the guise of new London outfit 'Kameleon' - a four man collective consisting of good friends Nic & Kaleb and Simon 'vicious circle' Vice of drum 'n' bass fame.
